Boondock Ramblings

A little bit about a lot of things

I love sharing blog posts I’ve discovered in my “bloggy rounds” throughout the week, but I haven’t done that in a while so this post might share some gems I have found throughout the last couple of weeks.

Mama’s Empty Nest talked about seeing “both sides” of an issue while also talking about a really cool bridge in Michigan. The photos and the words are gorgeous in this one.

I could relate to this one by Jenni at Housewife Hustle, talking about getting back to blogging after an injury but especially the part about giving up on chasing family down and trying to make them be part of their lives. Boy, does that get old after awhile!

Running Half Empty wrote about A Day in the Life of a Mom, showing things can be very crazy for us moms, even though we love our roles and our kids!

I enjoyed looking at these 3 DIY frugal home decorations for Thanksgiving from Our Little Red House and had even planned to do a couple, but since we just put our house up for sale, I haven’t had the time to even try.

Many of us know how negatively a “not-so-perfect” mother can affect a child, but we don’t always think abouthow the mother who tries to be perfect can also affect her children, something Kat from The Lily Cafe explored recently.

I enjoyed this post about a slow and cozy fall day from Erin at Still Life, With Cracker Crumbs. It was my kind of day, complete with photos, also “my thing”.

I’ve used a recipe similar to this before so I really liked that Michele from Blessings By Me shared thisPhilly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers recipe.  She has some mother great recipes on her blog as well.

Alethea’s Mind shared a great post about recognizing that we can do all things through Christ, no matter the limitations we see within ourselves. 

I love Lunch Break Fiction and this one, called The Book Club, was among my favorites of his.  He has so many great fiction stories on that site. If you haven’t checked him out already, you need to.

I have a link to the blogs I follow in the right sidebar, if you haven’t noticed before. I encourage you to check out some of those blogs if you are looking for new bloggers to follow in the upcoming new year.

So, how about you? Any favorite blog posts from the last couple of weeks? Maybe even one of your own? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share a link!

    Hi Lisa,
    I can recommend a seasonal post about the way views drop at Christmas.
    A short poem from chuq, an American blogger.

  3. Thank you Lisa for the mention, you are so sweet. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are keeping warm. There are storms all over the place this Thanksgiving it seems. Woke up to a broken french door out in my garden and lots of wet puddles everywhere. So much snow up north that even if we wanted to get up there to check on things the roads are closed to Our Little Red House, well they were this morning. Anyway, thanks so much and have a great weekend.

    1. Thanksgiving went well but looks like we have our first big snow storm coming this weekend or beginning of the week. In the middle of that we are trying to clean out the house because we have a showing next week, which we totally didn’t expect since we just put the house up.

  4. I read a post today by Bill Sweeney that everyone should read! Bill had a near death experience in 2015 and what he experienced was very similar to what I experienced when I died for a short time in 2012. Here is the link:
